How the fuck does Iwanami Yoshikazu still have a job? RIP the sound design of this anime.
He still is an exceptional and well-regarded sound director in the Japanese animation industry regardless whatever your perception of him is... I also really doubt you know more about sound directing than a professional that has worked as one in this industry for more than a decade to even question why he still has a job. So, just stop it…

Finally, he has been the sound director of this series since the very beginning. Are you even aware of that? or are you just one of those fools that speak before researching and looking at things? Honestly, I don’t care…

Does only watching Urobuchi composed seasons make me edgy or is it the other way around? Any Psychopass is better than the garbage from the rest of the year.

Wait, Ling Tosite Sigure isn't doing the OP?? Blasphemy!
I was hoping for them to do another one but we'll have to do with what've got.
All four LTS songs for psycho pass have been amazing. Other than the second season of high score girl, the new psycho pass op was the only thing I was looking forward to in the fall season. Sigh.

I hated the second season so... No thanks.

Call me when Urobutcher comes back.

if you like psycho pass you won't watch this shit. I mean, why would they make a 3rd season? there's not even a 2nd season!

Sep 28, 12:25 PM by Zehennagel

Not even Akane as a protagonist..
Egoist and Ling tosite Sigure where are you? :(
I feel disappointing already.

Really disappointed not seeing Kougami again ...

Sep 28, 5:17 AM by TheAwakenHD

Something tells me I'll score this lower than PP3. Where is akane? I demand an explanation, is she in Thailand, making out on a beach with Kougami? Damn! I really want to enjoy this.

No Kougami, no Akane, no Ling Tosite Sigure, no EGOIST, Maki the female MC... My hype just went down hill

My thoughts exactly. Every time I'm hoping that Akane will be back as MC but I guess it's time to realize that will never happen. Besides I can't stand Mika.
